Listen to Major Lazer's 'Watch Out For This (Bumaye)'

Diplo’s tropical collective enlists Busy Signal, The Flexican and FS Green for their latest tune.

While Major Lazer’s Free The Universe has been indefinitely delayed, Diplo and friends have made good on their promise of a new single, ‘Watch Out For This (Bumaye)’.

The horn-driven moombahton track appears to have originally been assembled by Amsterdam pair Flexican and FS Green, before receiving the Major Lazer treatment and a bit of dancehall toasting from Busy Signal.

Last week, Major Lazer shared the first of three pre-album mixtapes, Lazer Strikes Back Vol. 1. Their world tour begins this week.

Update: Major Lazer has signed to Secretly Canadian and will release Free The Universe on April 15, according to the label’s Twitter account. The group’s first album was released on Mad Decent through its partnership with Downtown Records.
